About Roo

Roo is, relatively speaking, one of the new kids on the block having only been discovered on the tropical island of New Guinea in the 1970s. Yet he has certainly made up for lost time and remains one of the most popular British bedding plants, thanks to his long bloom time and vibrantly coloured petals.


Current height including plastic pot: 10-15cm
Maximum height: 40-50cm


Roo likes his soil to be kept moist so water on a regularly basis.


Being over-exposed to too much sun or wind so everything in moderation.

Looking after this plant 

Water Roo enough to keep his soil moist to the touch and deadhead his spent flowers by using this technique. If you're unsure, here's a guide of how to best look after your plants and deadhead the flowers.

Living with pets and children

Roo is non-toxic.
